Abstract [en]

Power systems have been designed and operated so that the demand for electricity can be met at all times and under a variety of conditions. Depending on the season, the climate, and the weather, demand can fluctuate significantly over a single day, week, or month. For example, in France the extensive use of electricity to generate heating creates a relationship between increase in electricity demand and decrease in temperature that amounts to close to 2,400 MW/°C. In addition to meeting the variability requirements, there is always some inherent uncertainty about future demand and the future availability of generators. The power system must thus be able to manage both variability and uncertainty.
